I love that I have a place in the woods near my home where wild garlic grows. I found that place when I was hiking with Marten the other day. This is why I am having wild garlic a lot lately. This stuff is so great!

I made this dish from scratch on a weeknight and it was so delicious, that I have to share the recipe with you.

I used cashew cream and almond milk to make the sauce. Either use a highspeed blender to make the cashew cream or you soak the cashews in water for a couple of hours and use a normal blender. You can also use cashew butter and mix it with water.

If you prefer homemade almond milk, soak 200 g (7 oz) amlonds in water overnight and blend it with 850 ml (3 1/2 cups) fresh water, 1 – 2 dates and a pinch of salt. Then you filter the milk with a cheese cloth or nylon sock. Voilá. Use the left-over almond flour for baking or stir it in your porridge. I used store-bought almond milk this time, because I already had it in my pantry.

For the casserole:
  • 600 g (21 oz) gnocchi

  • 25 g (1 oz) wild garlic

For the sauce:
  • 125 g (4.5 oz) cashews

  • 350 ml (1 1/2 cups) almond milk
  • 100 ml (1/2 cup) vegetable broth

  • chili flakes

  • 2 - 3 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 200° C (390° F).

  2. Dice the bell peppers, and cut the wild garlic into strips. Combine with the gnocchi in a casserole and season with salt and pepper.

  3. Make the cashew cream by mixing cashews and water in a highspeed blender until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients for the sauce and mix again. Pour the sauce over the veggies and gnocchi and make sure every gnocchi is covered.

The sauce is a little bit runny at first, but it thickens, when it cools down a bit.
